The new user interface of xVM Server 1.0 and xVM Ops Center 2.0

I'm really impressed and proud of the work that the UI team has been doing on xVM for our upcoming release. The best UI of any management product I've ever worked on (and I've worked on quite a few).

In my last blog entry I showed a little teaser of the xVM Ops Center 2.0 user interface, that screenshot had been captured by Ben during one of our integration testing sessions.

xVM Server, the hypervisor stack that turns your x86 box into a host for virtual machines, comes with the same embedded web-server offering your browser a full graphical user interface. Not only is this GUI available inside your browser, wherever you are, on whatever device you're on, but it's also available directly on the xVM Server's console itself. No need for any tools, no need even for another machine with a browser if you just want local access!

Wouldn't you rather view this on your screen...

... and wouldn't you rather be using your choice of browser
on your desktop or your mobile device...


IE Safari



...rather than have to install a fat client app that only runs on Windows?

Over on the xVM Central blog, there is some more of xVM's UI to see.
